An OS-independent Exile series?


Recommended Posts

Hey, sorry if this has been brought up before but I couldn't find it. I've missed playing Exile 1-3 since the move to MacIntel, and I know that no modern computers, Mac or Windows, can play the older Exile series. I was wondering, rather than call for a newer version specifically for OS X or an open source project, how hard would it be to rewrite the game in Java so it could be hosted online, and played on multiple operating systems?

It would probably be harder to rewrite the game in Java than it would be to create an OSX-Intel compatible version of the game. Neither is likely to happen, though.


Windows users can run the Exile games, I believe, even in Vista (no idea about Win7 though). Linux users can run the games under WINE, as can Mac users (with CrossOver)*. Mac users can try Basilisk II, CrossOver, or a Windows emulator such as Parallels.



...I wonder if it would work in Win3.1 or Win98 under DOSbox...
